I am a visual artist who specializes in drawing, painting, and digital art. My studio is located in The Morrow Arts Center (MAC), Studio #17.
I am best known for my pen and ink word drawings. Each piece is a message within a message; a word, phrase, song, poem or story made visual by the image their repetition creates. These drawings are deeply personal as they are filled with the treasured memories and heart-felt sentiments of those who commission my work. From a distance, these drawings tend to look like they are made of interesting patterns. Step closer, and you will find hundreds and thousands of words, all hand drawn.
I have been interested in art all my life. I began my career as a freelance artist, specializing in print design and hand-lettering. After graduating with dual majors in commercial and computer graphics, I worked in package design and then on to website design, communication and visual storytelling. I am inspired by art that tells a story, brings joy, heals wounds, and hints at the infinite depth around the edges of routine.
